About Intrepid:

In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks.

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness.

But that’s the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out.

It’s been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I’ve tasted retribution and crave more of it.

Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free.

The plan is perfect, except for her. The one woman I’m forbidden to have, whose soothing touch settles my fractured mind. My angel of mercy sent to silence the voices. Yet, not even she can save me from the black void wherein my skeletons lie buried beneath the truth. Because in order to feed my thirst for revenge, I have to destroy the very thing that gives me purpose.

Tooth for a tooth, heart for a heart.

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

There are not enough words to describe this book. I feet tormented by the vividness of this book. Of the raw emotion that comes off the page that jumps out to you and of all the things you read and although you may want to stop you can’t help but continue reading.

The one thing that truly bothers me is that I feel as if I shouldn’t love the book, but I can’t but help it. No matter how bone chilling it is.

This is not for the faint of heart, you have been warned.

The Characters.

Sera has finally managed to escape her father’s clutches after eight long years and is now part of the real world but being stuck in a cage has made her naïve to the world. She gave up her dream for something more important. But things have been set in motion she won’t be able to stop. She didn’t want perfection anymore. She wanted passion, love she needed the emotional pain of living with no regrets.

I really liked Sera she was open and warm and pure. She is strong she has had to have been. She is overall one kickarse heroine.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. And holy shite Ty is one cold BAMF.

Ty has been planning and plotting he has a job to do and he is nearly at the end. He is after The Joker, The Pawn, The Fox and the The John. But he didn’t plan on Sera being a good person. Everything he thought he knew will change and at the end the unexpected will save him. He comes to a crossroad and it is time to make a choice. But there is the poison he can’t quite let go of because of the obsession he has developed.

Ty is a product of circumstances he isn’t a born psychopath, but he is a psychopath. I loved him. I don’t even consider him to be a monster.

The Chemistry.

“There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche

Right from the beginning there was a connection between them. They gravitated towards one another even though they didn’t want to. I saw them ending in disaster and was biting my nails hoping it wouldn’t but with their demons being laid bare they grew together more and more and truly had something raw and emotional.

The sexual chemistry between these two was steaming. It is rough, raw and downright filthy.

Admittedly Ty did screw-up, but they got it all back together again. There was blood and there was gore but hey it all worked out.

The Writing & Plot.

The writing is impeccable. Never in my wildest dreams had I expected something so exceptional. Holy shite the pace has rivaled all books I have read. There are so many intricate layers that weave in and out of one another. So dark it was nearly pitch black

“Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings — always darker, emptier and simpler.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

The book takes place in the past (nine years ago) and in the present. The flashbacks of the past where the worst for me. If I had known beforehand I might not have read it. But her other series is on par with this, so I shouldn’t have expected any less here. Lies, betrayal and revenge all get in the way.

I felt so much when I read this book. Desolation, anger, pain, sickening. It flayed me but with its rawness, grittiness and edginess it still had a spark of hope to it. Many readers won’t see that there is more to the book than meets the eye that it is in a way philosophical read and one of morals.

The Verdict

I was so far out of my comfort zone here which let’s face it I personally need that once in a while. So much that I was squirming. I was filled to the brim with emotion. Emotions I didn’t want and emotions I did want. I just couldn’t stop reading.
This is a book that will stay with me for a long time.

If you want to read something truly beautifully disturbing, then this is the book for you. Not all of you will like it I have written the reasons below.

There is no o/w drama, but the following is in the book:
– Child abuse
– Emotional/physical abuse
– Rape
– Murder (very inventive if do say so myself)
– Torture
